A binary double-phased-burst-error-correcting block code of rate 1/2 has been discovered by computer search. This code is quasi-cyclic, has a total burst-length-to-redundancy asymptotic ratio of 2/5, and is quite easily decodable. It can correct two phased-burst errors, each of length two digits or less. To correct larger nonphased bursts, interleaving is required.
